Limbaugh: Harry Reid Family Cashing In

Seems, according to Rush Limbaugh, that my Senator and Senate Minority Leader, Harry Reid, may not be so pure when it comes to nepotism. Naturally, the MSM is making believe this does not exist, even as they continue thier assault on Tom DeLay for what amounts to the same issues. And the left claims there is no media bias. You can read all about it here.

"For instance, the Nevada Democrat once sponsored an environmental bill that he touted as a bipartisan measure to protect the ecosystem and help the economy in America's fastest-growing state.

But as the LA Times reported: "What Reid did not explain was that the bill promised a cavalcade of benefits to real estate developers, corporations and local institutions that were paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in lobbying fees to his sons' and son-in-law's firms, federal lobbyist reports show."

Turns out that the Reid family gravy train relied on some of America's biggest corporate names."
So, you ask, where is the MSM on this? The New York Times is likely still looking for a republican to trash Tom DeLay. The rest of the MSM is likely hoping if they ignore Reid's trangressions everyone will forget about them. Hundreds of thousands of dollar may not be "real" money in DC, but it sure is to us regular Joes.
"Reid's response to the obvious conflicts of interest?

"Lots of people have children, wives and stuff that work back here," he insisted. "It is not as if a lot of cash is changing hands."

Hundreds of thousands of dollars - not a lot of cash?

One wonders how journalists would have reacted had Tom DeLay said that."
So, it is okay for Reid's kids to cash in on his position in the Senate, but let Tom DeLay pay his wife and daughter out of his campaign funds and it is a scandal. This is just another example of how the MSM is nothing but a shill dor the DNC. - Sailor
